STATS: Violence at the Arizona state mental hospital by the numbers

The ABC15 Investigators have been investigating safety and security at the Arizona State Hospital for more than eight months. We have reviewed thousands of pages of documents and obtained several years of data. Using that information, ABC15 Investigator Dave Biscobing created the interactive graphic below. Much of the data and statistics can be found in the downloadable spreadsheets linked to this page.

The past 13 months of assault data
**This spreadsheet also includes statistics on physical holds, restraints and seclusions. Officials said a deeper breakdown to distinguish between assaults against patients and staff was not available.

Workers' compensation reports
**This spreadsheet lists every reported injury, including assaults, by hospital workers from 2011 through June 23, 2013. It includes the date, location and a description for each reported injury.

Paid time off for injuries
**Time off resulting from workplace injuries is called industrial leave. This spreadsheet lists entries for industrial leave from 2011 through April 29, 2013. It also includes a month by month breakdown. Hospital officials said they could not provide information about the employee or reason for each entry of industrial leave.
